Deep Cuts

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Deep Cuts is a rune effect in Spectral Blade, a Signature Wizard skill that deals powerful damage at melee range.

This rune effect adds a DoT effect, causing enemies struck by the attack to bleed for an additional 35% weapon damage over 3 seconds. This does add some damage, but generally targets the Wizard is hacking at with this skill are going to take a lot more damage in the next three seconds, often enough to kill them outright. This damage might be most useful against tough Elites that take a long time to kill, or that the Wizard can hit once and then run from.
